               Written by Brenda Ringhardt and Denise Sery



               SCENE 67-68 



               INT. ROBERT'S OFFICE -DAY

               Robert is working at his desk.  He hears a knock on the door,
               which is open and looks up to find Annette.  She's dressed in
               a sexy short dress with spike heeled pumps.  Annette walks
               around to Robert.  She leans over and puts her breasts in his
               face.

                                   ANNETTE
                         I've missed you.

                                   ROBERT
                         Annette, I'm busy, very busy.

               She sits down on top of the desk.  She puts one foot on the
               arm of his chair and the other foot on the back. She leans
               back and puts her hands on the desk in a sexy pose.

                                   ROBERT (CONT'D)
                         It's not going to work this time.

               Susan walks in.

                                   SUSAN
                         Hey, Robert, I just wanted to ask
                         you--

               Susan sees Annette.

                                   SUSAN (CONT'D)
                             (fumbling)
                         Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't know you
                         had company. 

               Susan storms out.  Robert crawls under Annette's leg to get
               away from her and starts after Susan.

                                   ROBERT
                         Susan, wait, Susan, let me explain--

               He rushes down the hall behind her, she doesn't stop until
               she's in her office.  



               INT. SUSAN'S OFFICE -DAY

               Robert follows her in, and closes the door behind him.

                                   ROBERT 
                         If you'll let me explain--

                                   SUSAN
                         Explain the fact that you're
                         sleeping with the boss's daughter.

                                   ROBERT
                         It's not like that, Hezowitz knows
                         all about it.

                                   SUSAN
                         And that makes it better how?

                                   ROBERT
                         Well, it's not like I don't have
                         his approval.

                                   SUSAN
                         Damn it, Robert, who cares about
                         Hezowitz?

                                   ROBERT
                         Isn't that who we're talking about?

                                   SUSAN
                         Always answering my questions with
                         a question.  What is wrong with
                         you, Robert?

                                   ROBERT
                         I'm just trying to explain.

                                   SUSAN
                         Explain to me how you got your job
                         by sleeping with her and I got my
                         job by busting my ass 24/7.

               Robert tries to interject but Susan keeps going.

                                   SUSAN (CONT'D)
                             (talking to herself)
                         I've always been smarter than all
                         these men.  I've always been able
                         to do things better.

                                   ROBERT
                         Is that what this is all about? You
                         being better than me?

                                   SUSAN
                         Just when I'm going to win, some
                         man comes along and cheats because
                         he can't win any other way.

                                   ROBERT
                         Just because a woman finds me
                         attractive doesn't mean I'm a
                         cheater.

                                   SUSAN
                         No, you are a cheater, yesterday,
                         at the theme park . . . you know
                         what this is, just another booger
                         on my forehead!

                                   ROBERT
                         What?

                                   SUSAN
                         When I was eight years old.  A
                         booger right here. 
                             (points to forehead)

               Susan leans across the desk and as Robert leans forward to
               look at her forehead their eyes meet.  Both of them pause and
               stare at each other nostrils flaring.

                                   ROBERT
                             (amazed)
                         Bug?

                                   SUSAN
                         What did you call me?

                                   ROBERT
                         Bug?  Is that you?

                                   SUSAN
                         Get out.

                                   ROBERT
                         I didn't know, did you...?

                                   SUSAN
                         Get out, now!

               She throws something on her desk and breaks a glass table
               near by.  Robert puts up his hands, and bows out backwards. 
               He gets half way in the door of his office and Rhonda BUZZES
               him.

                                   RHONDA (V.O.)
                         Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep
                         and doesn't know where to find
                         them.

               Going back to his desk, disgusted.  Annette grabs Robert by
               the tie and tries to pull him to her.  Robert fights her off.

                                   ROBERT
                         Enough with the nursery rhymes,
                         Rhonda.

                                   RHONDA (V.O.)
                         Ms. Snyder from Grandland is on
                         line two.  She says it's very
                         important.

                                   ROBERT
                         Okay, put her on.

                                   MS. SNYDER
                         Mr. Brown, I was just calling to
                         check on Opal, since she wasn't
                         here today.

                                   ROBERT
                         What do you mean?  I dropped her
                         off there this morning.

                                   MS. SNYDER
                         Are you sure?  We haven't seen her
                         all day.

                                   ROBERT
                         Of course I'm sure.  

                                   MS. SNYDER
                         Well, Mr. Brown, Opal isn't here.

                                   ROBERT
                         You mean, you've lost my grandma?

               Robert rushes out of the office, Annette reaching for him,
               slips and flips over off the desk and lands with her skirt
               over head.

                                   ANNETTE
                         Daddy!!!!
